Matt, I just recalled this information for you.

http://www.instructables.com/community/Oooo-look-what-I-came-across-today/?comments=all#CIDCHZQFYNTAGO7

I am a Pro member there as Lateral Thinker, I set up as forum for Aspies, and member Goodhard was the first to sign up. I followed him to that topic

Instructables is just perfect for people with Asperiger's.

And Popular Science and Popular Mechanics would be prefect reading for ALL members of Instructables.

I note that Wikisource actively goes looking for old books, I suggest you post your request for Vol 75 there, by date, and see what comes up. Please advise me results, by private messaging me from there.

Ps to post on the forums, you just need to sign up, but not go Pro.

Peter

Sorry, I did not mean I was no longer interested.

And, its 6 monthly volumes, I was thinking 12 months.

The earliest PSM coming into NZ except via private importation, was 1930.

But I traced PMM back to the Great War, maybe our troops came across it while overseas, and began asking for it here, after the war.

My earliest of PSM and PMM are 1932, the bulk being 1935 onwards

Since we had a shortage of USA dollars, NZ got most of its imports from the sterling areas, we exported all our meat and wool to the UK so had to buy there. (loyalty, but a mistake). So most of the old books and magazines we got from the old days, came from UK publishers.
